Does anyone have a handlebar-mounted bottle holder they’d like to move on? It’s for regular use, so I’m looking for one which isn’t in perfect condition.
There's an old one on ebay - looks a bit bashed about, tho
Cheers, yeah I saw that one. Was hoping for a single.
Stunning original conditions.
Ops meant to reply to the Whirlwind one on ebay
Just spotted this one - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/203562090288?hash=item2f653eff30:g:YyEAAOSw5xthGTdg
Seller has a few decent bikes but in Cumbria-
I'm on the look out for spokes as usual, if
Anyone has any suggestions.
I have some old bits - free to anyone who is active / has been helpful to anyone by posting on this thread, otherwise, please do tell me what they’re worth and I’ll eBay them! I’m central, collection preferred, could post at cost.
Bayliss Wiley bottom bracket, spindle has 15 printed on it, it has all/some of the bearings (can’t remember and don’t want to open the bag) and looks to me to be in average to good condition. Not show bike, not visibly poor.
Another Bayliss Wiley, covered in thick grease, spindle stamped 23, has a bunch of bearings in the grease but I suspect not all, also has three cups - one (with red paint on, for reference later) definitely came with it, the other two I don’t know - one has holes for a tool removal and is faintly printed Bayliss Wiley, the other has flats for a spanner and a lip and is printed TDC.
Sachs Maillard 7 speed 12-18. Probably not old enough to be interesting. Possibly none of these are old enough to be interesting tbh….!
NOS Sturmey Archer chrome 36h low flange front hub - no idea what this is useful for or where/why I got it. Something like 90mm OLN and 140mm axle length.
Also - can anyone identify these? They are Airlights but beyond that I don’t know….!
My 1936 F W Evans. A lovely ride but will possibly be for sale if I lose my spare garage….:(
24" Algurn in West Byfleet:
Grandad out touring. Possible in Sweden in '49. His bike is listed as a 'Victor' on his hostelling card.
Look at that saddle!
What tubs are people currently using? I'm looking for some not too modern looking tanwall around 25-28 mm width. Currently have Challenge Vulcano in 25mm but the challenge is actually finding some new ones.
Nice old Holdswoth (la quelda?)
and a very nice Higgins
and a repainted Dan Genner Track
I rode solo down to Goodwood from Egham/Staines yesterday which is about 55 miles, then home from Woking another 13 miles. Legs are absolutely shot. I know they’re pretty big hills down that way, but I am NOT used to riding up hills any more!
Yep. Very nice.
Looks like the perfect bike for the ride. You had good weather too.
How was Goodwood?
Goodwood was really nice. They’ve managed to make it even bigger, if that was even possible.
Weather was fab. I must have only just not got sunburnt!
Great photo, lovely bike. The curve of the forks is so majestic.
I think I'll pass on the Holdsworth La Quelda that I picked up recently.
@crossedthread if you're still keen you can take it and complete the project?
Ah, pm me
